A lot of people might have considered decking Noel Gallagher over the years, but one Daniel Sulllivan actually took it upon himself to do it. While performing “Morning Glory” at Toronto’s 2008 Virgin Festival, Sullivan suddenly appeared on stage and, without warning, pushed the unsuspecting guitarist to the floor causing a halt in the performance for several minutes. Once nerves and microphones were restored, the band resumed performing with “The Importance of Being Idle”, but the band went on to cancel the remainder of their North American stops.
